With the attached patch, all ii-????-test tests pass on mingw.

Yes, it should test the host platform, not the build platform. I used
  echo '@host_os@'
and config.status replaces that with
  echo 'mingw32'

Also I removed the 'v' option from the $EGREP command (since we want the
$EGREP command to succeed, not to fail, in the mingw case), and removed
the 'i' option as well (since all config host values are lowercase ASCII

Yes, the known environments for compiling mingw binaries (mingw, msys2,
cygwin, debian) all have GNU diff in $PATH.
